I know, I know, every blogger and their dog has shared about ways to increase your exposure, whether it be specifically for your online website, blog or social media accounts, I have read multiple different posts… so what makes mine any different you wonder? The purpose of this post is to share five ways that have helped me gain exposure online from the beginning and may not necessarily be the most obvious ways to do so.

Some of the most frequent questions that I get emailed from new bloggers is how did you grow your brand? How did you start working with other brands? How are you involved in so many different things online? And so on… it isn’t easy to just pin point one answer for any of these questions, but I think that these tips will help share some things that I have done that have helped me with the success of Creative Wife & Joyful Worker.

Five Ways to Increase Your Online Exposure // for New Bloggers

1. GO FOR IT & COLLABORATE // don’t be afraid to email people to collaborate and share your ideas. Yeses are great and Nos mean nothing. Never be effected by a no, sure you can be bummed because obviously it’s an idea you had and you thought it would be great, but just because that person/business didn’t like it doesn’t mean it’s not still great, it just means that that person wasn’t the right person for it. Take that no, evaluate your idea, maybe make some changes then reach out to someone else that it might also be a great idea for.

2. GUEST BLOG // This was something that I didn’t give much thought at the start and thought it was a waste of time to share my ideas on other sites, but for google SEO it is the last thing from a waste of time. The more that your web page is linked to other credible websites the better standing your site has according to google. This increases the likelihood of your website being closer to the top of google search pages when people are searching for keywords within your site.

3. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR PHOTOS // Photos are huge for sending traffic to your blog. Make sure you take advantage of the title of your photo and the alt tag connected to your photo. The alt tag represents what your photo is when people are searching google. So if you lease it as “Codi1.jpg” (for example) That is going to be very useless, however if you use the alt tag to describe the photo like “Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe” when people look in google the likelihood of your image showing up for this google search is so much higher!

* When people use Pinterest and Pin images from your site this is what comes up automatically in the description and lots of people DO NOT change it. So great you got a pin, but learn to capitalize on that pin by automatically making the pin description searchable.

4. BE A YES PERSON // Starting out I wasn’t too sure of my direction for the blog (sometimes I still wonder about it) but that aside, the best way to find out what is best for you is to literally try everything. One thing that I hear a lot is, “You are Everywhere!” or people ask “How do you get all the opportunities that you do?”

It was from being a YES person, I honestly said yes to pretty much every opportunity that came my way. Keeping in mind that there are going to be obvious things that come through that are not your brand and you should for sure say no to starting out, but when you ponder, could this be good? Go for it and find out after.

Once you start to figure out more of your niche and your focus through saying Yes start saying No! You can’t always do everything and it is really unrealistic to do it all, start saying no more and in those cases try to refer someone else that might be a better fit. Saying no isn’t so hard if you can leave the person with a new direction to go in.

5. JOIN BLOG GROUPS // There are so many great groups out there for bloggers, sometimes it is hard to find ones where there are active people, but once you do it is such a help! There are lots of groups for either sharing threads to get feedback and/or groups where there is no sharing allowed and it is strictly for asking advice and sharing opportunities with other bloggers.

I have joined a few groups recently that would have been so helpful to do ages ago, finding other supportive bloggers is such a relief and helps you to learn things you otherwise may not have even thought about.

I hope that you were able to learn something from these tips or even allowed you to think about what you are already doing in a new light. I love connecting with new bloggers and sharing my ideas but as my blog and my family grows my time has become much more limited to the amount of emails I can whole heartedly respond to. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below, I would love to hear what you learned or even what you might still be interested in learning more about.

  • We got crafty and turned our Nesquik container into a monster piggy bank! Ezra sure had fun getting crafty, I got to sit back and watch 😊. Of course I tried to be a funny mom by shaking his monster’s hand 😊. Our time crafting was also enjoyed with a healthy snack of fruit!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We are hoping that we inspired you to get creative too! See a little behind the scenes of our creation in my stories and then head to the Nesquik Imagination contest to submit your craft creation for your chance to win 1 of 4 $500 prize packs. We've got a full summer ahead of us and I'm sure some of you mama's are looking for something to do, so here it is! PS go ahead and take our piggy bank idea as the starting point for your contest entry. Good luck!⁠⠀

  • @Breyers Delights just launched three new flavours including Vanilla Cupcake, Caramel Brownie and Raspberry Fudge, and they are the perfect reward after a long day’s work. I've been working hard on living a healthier lifestyle and exercising more but I think it's also important to find balance and indulge in delicious treats every now and then.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Made with high quality ingredients and only 80-90 calories per serving (125 ml), @Breyers delights gives me the delicious taste I've been craving. Visit the link in my bio to learn more about the new flavours and try them out for yourself! #Breyers #BreyersPartner #Ad
  • Each issue I contribute to @ilikeherstylevancouver’s magazine and every single time it’s SO HARD to keep it a secret about what I’m about to share.

I teamed up with @lisa.pineda.fit to put together some morning stretches to start your day on a positive note. I am IN LOVE with the feature, would love it if you grabbed an issue or checked it out online, also swipe right to see two of the cutest photos of Evelyn and my mom stretching it out that @juliechristinephotography snapped just as we were getting started (I may have given them matching hairstyles too )
  • This is the first summer where I haven't worried about having all the kids home, the no naps and everyone potty trained has definitely helped with that!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I also know that having ALL THE SNACKS on hand when we head out for adventures is KEY! Summer Days is back at @shell which means you get 10 Bonus AIR MILES when you buy any 2 snacks or 2 drinks. Next weekend is the FIRST weekend this summer we actually don't have plans!!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Give us some ideas, what's your favourite Summer activity or destination?⁠⠀

  • The other week @lovinglittlesblog and I were invited to participate in a black box cooking competition put on by @whitespot_restaurants and @eatdrinkbuybc in support of a charity of our choice. We competed against 8 other teams and created a pecan crusted chicken stuffed with goat cheese and fresh local blueberries. You guys.... it was GOOOOOD! But, there were lots of amazing dishes created that afternoon and even though we didn't win we were still able to donate $200 to the charity of our choice, @bcwomens.

Fun fact: White Spot and Triple O's serve more than 49,000 pounds of fresh blueberries in their menu items, all from local farmers across BC. That's a lot of blueberries and a lot of local love! Starting today blueberries have returned to all White Spot and Triple O's locations but are only available for a limited time while Mother Nature allows. We got to try their fresh BC blueberry milkshake and fresh BC blueberry pie this afternoon, still drooling.
